BBI Blue Box 1/18th scale OH-58D

Recommended Posts

       I found this toy for sale at my local hobby shop, for a very reasonable price. The detail of this helicopter is spot on to the actual aircraft. I tore as much as I could down to fix some of the problems. (correct paint color for the fuselage, corrected the configuration of the main rotor head ( pitch control tubes),and the tail rotor (pitch control rods), and added the correct detail to the cockpit( Fabric for the seats, seat belts, intercom cords for both the pilot, and co-pilot, and corrected the collective lever for the aircraft commander. You could add a ton of detail to this helicopter to produce an great display model. I used Testor US ARMY HELO DRAB FS34031 for the body. I also added anti-collision and navigation lights  as well.

Very cool looking bird.

The MRC 1/35 kit is going to be my next build (I think).  I have the Zacto model Resin and PE set to update it.
